EXCLUSIVE: Lights! Camera! Pat McGrath!
For those of you who follow team Style.com on Instagram (we’re @styledotcomnicole, @styledotcommarina, @styledotcommatthew, and @styledotcomcelia, for those of you who don’t), you’ll have noticed an uptick in posts as we wade our way through the Fall collections from New York to Paris. As far as beauty photos go, none has garnered more attention than the casual snap we published from backstage at Dolce & Gabbana—which is presumably because it was one of only a handful of Instagrams that pictured the handiwork of one Pat McGrath. For the Italian house’s Fall show, the famed makeup artist and creative adviser of Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup channeled classic Italian glamour and a touch of Sophia Loren with an exceptionally gorgeous matte crimson mouth, beautiful brows, and perfectly drawn black cat-eyes. Here, in a Style.com exclusive, she explains the ins and outs of the application, and why this is a look that even the most lipstick-phobic beauty fiend can 100 percent pull off.
